A juvenile rhesus macaque presented with atrophy of the musculature of its left leg. Physical examination localized the problem to the coxofemoral joint. Radiography revealed changes consistent with Legg-Calvé-Perthes (LCP) disease. Femoral head ostectomy was performed, and the femoral head was submitted for histologic examination, results of which confirmed a diagnosis of LCP.
